World number three Roger Federer says his back has improved as he returns to action in Stuttgart, three weeks before the start of Wimbledon.

The Swiss, 34, withdrew from the French Open, ending a run of 65 consecutive appearances at Grand Slam tournaments.

But the seven-time Wimbledon champion says he benefitted from rest before his return to Stuttgart’s grass courts.

“I feel much better again. It’s been a good last three weeks. No setbacks,” Federer told the ATP website.
